confirmed he is on the block

http://www2.sportsnet.ca/blogs/hocke...de_vishnevski/

According to the Orange County Register, the Anaheim Ducks were considering walking away from the decision, but decided to accept the rule and then promptly put the defender on the trading block.

"We toyed with a ‘walk-away,'" Ducks general manager Brian Burke told the Register. “While we accept the award, we do not share the opinion that this is an appropriate salary. We will entertain trade options.”

Vishnevski earned $1.14 million last season and played in all 82 regular season games for the Ducks.

Okay, so openly say that you think your player is not worth $1.14mill, basically if he's not worth that much (and only $600,000 as speculated) what the heck does Burke think he's going to get back in return???

Dan Wood reports Ducks GM Brian Burke "reluctantly" accepted Vishnevski's arbitration award but intends to pursue trade options. After faxing the 29 other NHL clubs on Friday of Vishnevski's availability Wood reports the Ducks thus far received one, unsatisfactory proposal. As for Vishnevski, his agents claim their client would appreciate a trade. "If they can put something together, that would be fine with us. Vitaly wants to go where he's appreciated. The Ducks were unnecessarily nasty in the arbitration hearing."


==========
The Ducks will consider offers of established players, prospects or future draft picks in exchange for Vishnevski, Burke said.
==========

big immobile defenseman are a thing of the past. atleast souray can score, so that makes him useful...and at times he can also be good defensively. vishnevski is overrated and i'd rather have beauchemin, but we all know what happened to him when he was with our organization.
lou lamoriello is stating that he WILL resign scott gomez. this should make one of their big players expendable. brian rafalski anyone? that's kind of d-man the habs could use.

I meant trade-value wise, is it worth the trouble to sign him if you're going to get back a 6th/7th rounder?

Vishnevski is a immobile defenseman ?

if frank b is gone for the first 3 months of the season you better find a guy who can atleast play as physical as he can

.rafalski ? sure put another 5'9 defensmen on our blueline

With Bouillon and injured knee perhaps he would be a valuable option...

Beauchemin was about 30-40 pounds overweight when he showed up in Anaheim..... The reason why he's turned out much better is Randy Carlye told him to hit the treadmill and switch to the Slimfast.... I'm sure Claude Julien really didn't give him much of a look in the NHL but you can't bash them for losing Beauchemin thru waiver as it was the conditioning issue with Beauchemin that caused him not to get a chance. Too Bad Carlye didn't get a chance to fix up Jason Bosignore (1st rd 4th overall in 1994) before he got hooked on the potato chips...


Doug Mclean in Columbus must spend 24hrs a day attached to the waiver wire just waiting for some prospect filler to drop into his lap BTW you didn't hear much about Beauchemin in Columbus... Anyways, The point is Montreal really didn't miss the boat on Beauchemin just Anahiem was able to motivate him to reach at least part of his potential and I think he looks alot better than he is because of playing with Niedemeyer.
